This month's Island Batik Ambassadors challenge was to create a quilt that makes a secondary pattern using our Island Batik Fabrics. After doing some thinking I looked at some of my past designs and found one that was ideal.
|EQ8 Design of Modified Whirlwind|
The Island batik fabrics are all from the Island Batik Basics Foundation Collection.
And for this pattern, I have used the Studio 180 Design Split Rects® and the Tucker Trimmer® 1 tools. By the way, while you are reading this post I'm currently in Arlington, Texas attending my Studio 180 Design Certification Instructor Training with Deb Tucker and her awesome crew.
Once all the half square triangles and the Split Rects are made it was time to make the blocks. This is such a fun and easy quilt to complete.
The center blocks are now assembled time to get this quilt put together.
Speaking binding, In my last couple of weeks I demonstrated how to make strip binding that was used in this quilt in my Quilt Talk Tuesday episode.
And this week I demonstrated how to bind the quilt using my favorite binding tool.
Here is my completed project.
